The Old School Men's Shops Of London Part 2

A highlight of our trip to London was our afternoon with London dandy, Ray Frensham. We toured the menswear shops of Jermyn Street, St. James's Street, Savile Row, and the surrounding streets and arcades. Here is the second of a few posts highlighting some of our dandy tour.

Dr. Harris & Company Chemists And Perfumers:

The aroma that overtook us when we walked in was incredible.  We imagined it smelled that way for over 200 years.

The statue of the original dandy, Beau Brummell:

Bates Hatmakers, housed within Hilditch & Key Shirtmakers:

We understand that Bates lost its space because of new development so it opened in the back of Hilditch & Key.

A shoeshine stand in one of the arcades:

There's nothing like an old fashioned shoe shine.
